We will explain in this article how to use the MyOmBox API with IFTTT (service available only in English) to be able to control your home automation system myHome with among others, a voice assistant such as Google Assistant (phone, watch, Google Home) or Alexa (but not available in France for now).
This article may seem a little technical for neophytes , but do not worry, we thought of you and our future SoMyOm application will be very accessible! However, it will take a little patience because there is a lot of work to achieve an application compatible with the main connected objects on the market and to live up to our ambitions, especially in terms of ease of use and configuration.
Here’s a preview video of the next MyOmBox update! It will be available as of the next update (planned 4th quarter 2017).
With Google home, you can now control your MyHome Bus & Radio system from Legrand with MyOmBox, with precise voice commands!
This first step uses predefined voice phrases because this system uses the future MyOmBox API as well as the IFTTT application. It will be possible with some configuration to enter your own sentences that will trigger actions and link them to the MyOmBox API.
The second major step in our development will be the integration of MyOmBox and Google assistant in our future SoMyOm® application planned for 2018. This unique application will allow interaction between all connected objects, whatever their brand, for even more use fast and simple.
